I think people have written off Graham too quickly. There are lots of NBA players that have taken more than one year to establish themselves as solid players. He has the skills.

He has the skills, just not the confidence. That comes in time.

Gotta be kidding me, our weakness's are at SF/SG and we are gonna trade away our second best at that position for PG depth and Hedo Turkolu?

I'm not too keen either. Especially when we can sign Parker and Garbajosa who, between the two of them, can play all five positions and who are both experienced veterans with championship experience. I'm all for signing two of Europe's best veteran players. I'll even put up with all the inevitable 'soft euro' jokes.

My stomach would turn if I ever saw Turkoglu in a Raptors uniform. Yuck.. I just don't like his game. It would be like trading for a crappier version of Villanueva.

I don't like seeing Joey Graham go but as we said about the Charlie V trade, top get good players, you must give up good players.
where getting rid of a contract that expires in a couple years, for hedo's, which if i'm not mistaken is a huge one that still has multiple years on it, although I could be wrong on this contract info, and if I am I apoligize. I'm not crazy about this deal.

I like this trade can you imagine this possible line up.

pg ford 5-10
sg peterson 6-7
sf turkoglu 6-10
pf bargnani 6-11
c bosh 6-11

That is the tallest front court in the league. Can you imagine turkoglu and bargnani hitting 3's, how could any team cover two guys who are almost 7 feet that can shoot 3's.

:rollingeyes:
Bargs is 7 feet easy, Bosh is 6'10, and if anyone is going to play centre it will be the guy that weighs 250 pounds. Lets see, which one is that again? And how do you figure Ford is 5'10? He's listed at 6 even. If you want to start making up measurments then there's no point in posting them next to the players name.

And f Turkoglu! I really don’t like him. I want to say hate but that's a strong word, more suitable his fellow flopping buddy Vlade.

P.S. People say that Bosh has grown some so we'll see if they adjust his measurement, but I doubt they will. Until then he is 6'10.
